About

Dedicated to Sage Kalu, one of the 84 disciples of Sage Dattatreya, ‘Kalu Sidh’ Temple is located in Dehradun, Uttarakhand. Situated just 28 km away from Dehradun ISBT, this temple is nestled in the dense forest of Kaluwala near Bhaniawala Village. It is one of the four revered Sidh Peeth of Dehradun (other three are Laxman Sidh, Manak Sidh and Madu Sidh), all dedicated to Sage Dattatreya disciples.

Being located in four different directions, these four shrines are located within a radius of 15 km. It is believed that, visiting these four shrines in a single day while fasting may fulfill one's wishes. Located on the outskirts, the temple offers a serene environment, attracting not only the devotees but also nature lovers. Interestingly, Kalu Sidh temple doesn't have a roof. It is said that villagers have tried to build a roof but failed every time. Hence, the idol of the sage is kept under an open sky. Jaggery is the most common prasad that was offered by the people during their prayers.

Moreover, during Shivratri, people gather in large numbers to offer water at the Shivling placed in the temple courtyard. Devotees may visit the temple in the morning, as its doors open at 6 in the morning and closes after evening prayer by 7 PM. Visitors are advised to take care of their belongings as the temple is the home to a number of monkeys.
